Fire marshal training legal requirements
What are your fire marshal training legal requirements?
So what are your fire marshal training legal requirements? Fire law requires persons in charge of fire safety in a building to have an evacuation plan in the event of a fire. The law also requires that person to have sufficient number of trained personnel to put the plan into place.
The frequency of fire marshal training will be based on the level of risk in the building. This can be found out by carrying out a fire risk assessment in the place of work. Places of work where there is a high life risk such as a care homes would need training more often than a small ground floor shop with a small amount of floor space.
Even though fire deaths in places of work are uncommon, regular fire training of fire marshals is required. You may need additional fire marshal training if you have shift work or also a high turnover of staff. The following list provides a rough guide to fire marshal training frequency:
Places with sleeping accommodation such as care homes and also hotels – annual fire training
Large buildings where members of the public gather – annual training
Buildings that offer healthcare and also where disabled persons visit – annual fire training
Buildings such as schools, colleges, nurseries and also universities – annual fire training
Premises with large numbers of persons or high risk – annual fire training
Smaller buildings such as offices, small retail units or also small low risk units – fire training every two or three years.
